Just an update folks, seeing that there is a bit of flight sim nostalgia rearing its head again.
I have increased my collection to 3 times the original post, pics below. I now have two more pc's, built in retro fashion from old ebay bought bits and stuff I had lying around from upgrades over the years. A pentium 100 with dos 6.22 for the really old stuff. And a Pentium 600 with a geforce 2 card and two voodoo 2's in sli format for the early win 95/98 flight sims.

I also have an amiga 500 and a 1200 for my growing collection of amiga flight sims. (favourites being Flight of the Intruder and F16 Combat Pilot).

All in all, my flight sim collection is starting to really grow now. I have been simming since 1985 (C64)and my love for sims is growing as I get older. I also have many Motorsport Sims and naval and space etc. But its Flight combat sims that float my boat.

ps, favourite medium age sim (early 90's to mid) is currently...... is........Tornado with dessert storm addon, I love it.

Anyways gotta go guys, back to modern times, a session in LOMAC Flaming Cliffs awaits.



ps...........merry christmas and a happy new year.

Man, it just makes me weep to see those pictures. I realize that at one time I owned probably 90 percent of what I've been seeing in those shelves, all of them bought brand new. Darn me and my non pack rat mentality... Since I travel a lot, I don't have time to use a retro desktop, so the adventure goes on. Check the 'Going historical' for updates.

Now I'm off to find 1942:PAW...

I have the "Squadron Leader Special Edition Binder" that has 28 chapters and is quite large. This was back in the day of wonderful manuals \:\)

PUCK! Have you ever moved in the past 20 years! Hahah. I can say I have a great deal of the sims you've posted, but almost none of the boxes! IMPRESSIVE! You should put a velvet rope in front of that and call it art.

Here's a pic of my collection. It's a total of 66 titles and their add-ons. I just pulled them all out of boxes in my basement for the purpose of taking this picture.

On the top row, facing forward, are the sims I currently have installed. All the rest are "nostalgiaware".

I included a tank sim (Spectrum Holobyte's "Tank") and a sub sim (Microprose's Silent Hunter II) but left out my space combat sims like all the Star Wars games and my two Freespace games (Freespace 2, by the way, still looks and plays great today though).

There are also a few titles that, for whatever reason, I can't find. I know I bought them but I can't find them in the boxes I thought they were in. These titles would include: F14 Fleet Defender and Eurofighter 2000.

Thanks, Pretzel.

Yes, I simply had to own all the add-ons for SWOTL. Loved that game.

My collection is nowhere near what yours is but I do notice some games in your collection that I at least tried before returning or trading in (Black Knight on your top shelf is a game I remember but returned for one reason or another).

I also have Megafortress as you do. I liked the game but never really got the hang of it. Found it hard to get through a mission alive.

Yeah, I had the early Jet Fighter game (bought the first 3 in the series). It was fun at the time. I thought JFIII gave a great sense of speed, especially at low altitude.

Hi guys,

This is my first post on this forum. I love flight sim nostalgia but I don't have anywhere near the number of classic sims as some of you have. Here are all the flight sims I've owned at some time or another (ones with * I have installed at the moment):

Flight Simulator 2000
FS2002 (Pro)
FS2004 + loads of add-ons *
CFS2
CFS3
DID F22 Air Dominance Fighter
Il2 Sturmovik
Il2 Forgotten Battles *
Lock On/Flaming Cliffs *
Strike Fighters Gold *

Sadly I don't have F22 anymore, the others I still have lying around somewhere. When I think of all the happy hours I spent on FS2000 and F22 particularly, it makes me feel very nostalgic.

I picked up Strike Fighters Gold for 5 in Game the other day and I'm thinking about getting Falcon 4 Allied Force soon as well - sounds like the best flight sim around at the moment.
